30A South Walton 10409402 766537093385028 4109786916247146670 n Food For Thoughts Second Annual Art Of Giving on Sept 18Coming off the success of last year’s inaugural event with an auction of Justin Gaffrey paintings, Food For Thought Outreach will host its Second Annual Art Of Giving on Thursday, September 18th at the Churchill Oaks Clubhouse, presented by Southern Fashion House and Summer House Lifestyle.

But there’s a twist for this year’s fundraiser…

Instead of one artist, the 2nd annual event will feature the works of three acclaimed local artists. Chandler Williams, Allison Wickey, and Justin Lyons have all donated pieces, including some collaborative items.

“We’re beyond thrilled to have this diverse offering of amazing artwork as part of this year’s auction,” said Food For Thought Founder and Director Tiffanie Shelton. “If you can’t attend the event, you’ll still be able to bid online. The quality of the items they’ve donated are going to make this event a sure success.”

That success will resonate in the community. Food For Thought is a non-profit organization that fights child hunger in Okaloosa and Walton counties by offering snack and meal programs to local school children and families throughout the year.

Drinking 30A Beach Blonde Ale – brewed by Grayton Beer Company — is pretty darn fun to begin with. But deciding who’s gonna buy the next 30A beer can be something of an awkward dilemma. So, we decided to come up with a little game to help speed along any possible brew bureaucracy.

Our version of “The Secret,” but without all of the metaphysical mumbo jumbo.

Underneath each 30A bottle cap, you’ll find one of these three symbols: a SHARK, a HOOK or a CRAB.

And the game is pretty simple, because it’s just our beachy knock-off of ROCK-PAPER-SCISSORS. Simply pop a couple of tops and compare your symbols:

Last year, 30A 10K presented a $40,000 check to Donations 4 Danny, Food For Thought Outreach Inc and Lighthouse Family Retreat.

Mark your calendar for the 30A Thanksgiving 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run because it’s going to be another fantastic race. This year, they’re limiting participation to 3,000 RUNNERS, so secure your spot as soon as possible, especially since this year’s 30A 10K is an official RRCA Championship Race!

Over the years, long-distance running has become synonymous with the noble cause of raising funds for charities, and the 30A 10K is certainly no exception. In fact, the 30A 10K race team has been hard at work to make this year’s race not only a spectacular event, but also to use it as an opportunity to give back to the community in the spirit of the Thanksgiving season.

Since the race’s inception just two years ago, the 30A 10K Charity Race has donated over $58,000 to local non-profits.

If you’re not a runner or walker, you can still get involved in this wonderful 30A tradition! For example, please consider volunteering to help with parking or water stations. If you’re interested in helping, please email the 30A 10k team.
